This was a coproduction by the Suzanne Dellal Centre and the Israeli Opera which premiered in November 2009 at the Tel Aviv Opera House.
"Rooster" is based on a short story "Bontsha the Silent" by Isaac Loeb Peretz and is about an unfortunate young man during a night of sporadic dreams. Barak Marshall creates entertaining moments which will delight the audience. "Rooster" is very much a dance theatre work at once funny, sad, and lively.
"Barak Marshall is a true creator, a mature choreographer with a powerful style and a unique voice. His work is original, powerful, frenzied, carried along by excellent dancers and by an inner momentum and an intelligence which give it a dramatic fluency."
